Apple Cinnamon overnight oats ingredients based on what I used and had on hand with some recommended substitutions.
- Rolled oats- I don't recommend using quick oats for this recipe and make sure to use certified gluten free oats.
- Cashew milk- any unsweetened plant based milk will work for these but my personal favorites are cashew and almond milk.
- Apples- organic honey crisp apples were used or you can substitute with your favorite apple.
- Almond butter- creamy almond butter or any nut butters would work.
- Maple syrup- you can substitute with honey but it won't be vegan friendly.
- Chia seeds- optional but recommended for a great source of plant based protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
- Cinnamon ground- Ceylon cinnamon recommended.

I love overnight oats. Your combination sounds incredible!
Love the idea of using almond butter in overnight oats! It's been ages since I made overnights oats, and it's time I rectified that - great recipe!

I love almond butter with apples but I've never tried both of those in oats! That's genius! I'll definitely be trying this!
Overnight oats is a such a time saver especially during the week. This sounds great!
I have yet to jump on the overnight oatmeal bandwagon, however the sound of almond butter and apples sound absolutely delightful and worth trying.
